Obama Disses Police, The Left's War On Cops, Good News, 2016 Presidential Update

by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author:  Obama Disses Police -  President Obama's speech at yesterday's memorial service for the five slain Dallas police officers had a number of good moments, as you would hope and expect of any president. Naturally, he praised their service. But it wasn't long before his remarks took a sharp left turn.

Obama again lectured the country about racism and ran through a check-list of the left's political agenda. But my point isn't about what the president said, it's about what he failed to do.

This president likes to spike the football. While presidents traditionally have tried to be bridge builders and respectful of their opposition, Obama has not been reticent when it comes to bragging about his accomplishments or even demeaning his opponents.

For example, when congressional Republicans expressed concerns about the president's stimulus plan, his response was, "I won."

When Osama bin Laden was killed, Obama's address to the nation was largely about him.

When the Supreme Court discovered a previously unknown right for men to marry other men, Obama again spiked the football. As millions of men and women of faith were grieving, he bathed the White House in the colors of the rainbow -- the adopted symbol of the gay rights movement.

After the Dallas police shootings, Governor Greg Abbott ordered the governor's mansion to be bathed in blue. Do you think it occurred to anyone at the Obama White House to do the same in honor of the slain officers?

I have no idea whether anyone on Obama's staff thought about it. But I do know that Jon Adler, president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association Foundation, requested it. So Obama was asked by leaders of the law enforcement community to "demonstrate his full respect" and "sincere commitment to our fallen heroes and their families." And that request was not honored.

The Left's War On Cops - It's one thing for the president to say he supports the police. Most Americans do. But compared to the atmosphere eight years ago, there is no denying that there is a war against police being waged in America's major cities.

As we all know, five officers were gunned down in Dallas. Police in Baton Rouge have arrested three individuals for plotting an attack on officers. But there are dozens of other things taking place that should outrage us all. For example:
  • The father who sends his little boy to a cruiser to give the officers the finger.
  • The restaurant workers who jeered at cops and deliberately ruined their food.
  • The NAACP leader and the former Miss Alabama who defended the Dallas shooter, even calling him a "martyr."
  • The football player who, adopting the imagery of ISIS, posts a disgusting picture of a cop getting his throat slit.
The responsibility for these outrages rests squarely with the left-wing political movement that strives to keep minorities in a constant state of agitation in order to drive voter turnout. It rests with the media, which thrives on the sensational and exploits confrontation.

Sadly, there are millions of decent people in America who believe, because they are seeing it on the news, that the biggest threat facing minorities is law enforcement. That is a lie.

By the way, where is most of the trouble happening? In big cities, dominated for decades by Democrats. They have Democrat mayors and city councils. The left controls all levers of power. If there is a problem in America's inner cities, it has very little to do with Republicans and conservatives.

The Good News - There is a battle raging for the heart and soul of black America. But while the radicals may be the most vocal, they are not representative of all black Americans. For example:
  • NFL player Benjamin Watson was on Fox & Friends this morning discussing his book, "Under Our Skin." He said the big problem plaguing the black community is the breakdown of the family and the lack of fathers. Referring to the riots in Ferguson and the struggles that divide us, Watson wrote, "The cure for the Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice and Eric Garner tragedies is not education or exposure. It's the Gospel. So, finally, I'M ENCOURAGED because the Gospel gives mankind hope."
  • It should encourage us that men like Chief James Craig are in charge of the Detroit Police Department. Craig ordered the arrest of four individuals who posted threats to kill police on social media. "I know this is a new issue, but I want these people charged with crimes," Craig said. "I've directed my officers to prepare warrants for these four individuals, and we'll see which venue is the best to pursue charges."
  • And we should all be thankful for men like Officer Jay Stalien, who became a police officer because, "I wanted to help my community and stop watching the blood of African Americans spilled on the street at the hands of a fellow black man. I became a cop because black lives in my community, along with ALL lives, mattered to me, and [I] wanted to help stop the bloodshed." His full post is long, but it is well worth reading.
There are some really bad people who want Americans at each other throats. One of them is former KKK leader David Duke, who is thinking about running for Congress. I promise you that Campaign for Working Families and I will do everything we can to make sure that racist and Jew-hater never steps foot in Congress!

But I am greatly encouraged by the fact that there are many, many men and women of faith of all races who truly believe this country can be a "shining city upon a hill."

2016 Update - Judges are not supposed to make comments that show bias or may prejudice cases before them. That's one reason why Supreme Court justices are usually very guarded when it comes to national politics.

That's why it was so surprising when Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said recently, "I can't imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president." She also suggested moving to New Zealand if he wins.

Well, there's a good reason to vote for Donald Trump!

Ginsburg's comments were roundly condemned on the left and the right. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called her remarks "totally inappropriate," adding, "It raises a level of skepticism that the American people have from time to time about just how objective the Supreme Court is."

Even the left-wing New York Times criticized her, writing, "Washington is more than partisan enough without the spectacle of a Supreme Court justice flinging herself into the mosh pit."

Today, new polls were released in the key battleground states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Trump and Clinton were tied in Ohio, while Trump was leading in Florida and Pennsylvania.

In addition, new polls find Clinton leading by just four points in Nevada and Trump leading by two points in Iowa. Four years ago, Obama carried both states by six points.
